VPN RAX120 - Windows 10

 

Trying to find RTFM for how to setup VPN.  I did the usual of enable link to no-ip.com   so my DNS for public IP does get set in the configuration client export.  I left the network acess to "auto"

 

Configuration file

####

client
dev tap
proto udp
dev-node NETGEAR-VPN
remote foobar.ddns.net 12974
resolv-retry infinite
nobind
persist-key
persist-tun
ca ca.crt
cert client.crt
key client.key
remote-cert-tls server
auth-nocache
cipher AES-128-CBC
comp-lzo
verb 0
sndbuf 393216
rcvbuf 393216

 

***

OpenVPN Windows Client 11.20.0.0

I set client password to match that of the router (though I don't think this is required.

I unzipped all files into :C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\config\foobar.ddns.net\

 

# list of files present

Mode LastWriteTime Length Name
---- ------------- ------ ----

# Click "Connect" and shows "diconnect" button.. so its trying..   but look at log:

2021-07-23 15:21:28 WARNING: Compression for receiving enabled. Compression has been used in the past to break encryption. Sent packets are not compressed unless "allow-compression yes" is also set.

I use to just export from router and unzip file and run it.. but now it seems to have something wrong.  This is a fresh install of Windows 10x64

You have posted your message in the section of this community given over to Nighthawk WiFi Routers. (This is easily done, given Netgear's complicated community structure.)

Many questions apply to different types of device, so there may be useful responses here, but there are subtle differences between RAX and bog-standard Nighthawk routers, so you might get more help, and find earlier questions and answers specific to your device, in the appropriate section for your hardware. That's probably here:

Nighthawk Routers with WiFi 6 (AX) - NETGEAR Communities

I will ask the Netgear moderator to move your message.
